The ROA is fairly tough, good looking and shoots well. It is not my favorite shooter. The '58 is more fun. But, the ROA is special to me. There are no new ones being made. Modern design meets old time function. Made here in the states by American workers. And hey, I like blued guns, but stainless sure is rugged and easy to care for, a bit more forgiving than blued steel. My ROA is the only SS gun I own. Certainly won't be the last.
And yes the loading lever is not the best.
